StarWars.com Team | October 5, 2010

Most of us here at StarWars.com are suckers for the propaganda poster aesthetic, and this pro-restraining-bolt piece we spotted over at Superpunch really captures the style beautifully. By artist Tim Fischer, who also recently composed “Do Your Duty, Trooper”.

Spoonful of Star Wars Art Show

Bonnie Burton | September 30, 2010

Artist Bwana Spoons has made one heck of a tribute with Spoonful of Star Wars – over 100 paintings of vintage Star Wars action figures!

So I got this awesome commission to do every standard figure and variations there of… of the classic Star Wars action figure line. These are part still life part/part something else.

The first sixty or so are from my personal collection, some of which have even survived with me since childhood. A pretty amazing feat considering what I put them through.

Check out some of these amazingly cool portraits of Star Wars action figures here: Classic SW Nerd. They will also be displayed in person Nov. 20 at DesignerCon.

Comic Artist Launches The Ben TempleSith Star Wars Project

StarWars.com Team | September 29, 2010

Comic book artist Ben Templesmith — best known for his work on 30 Days of Night, Fell, Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse, Singularity 7 and Welcome To Hoxford — is doing his own online tribute to Star Wars by drawing each and every character… just for fun.

The artist recently announced on Twitter that he plans to draw every Star Wars character as they appear in the original trilogy. The first two characters he’s already posted are none other than the dynamic droid duo of C-3PO and R2-D2.

The first in a series of quick character sketches of every single half decent Star Wars character that appears in the original trilogy… in the order they basically appear in the films.

Yes, I’m nuts, but always wanted to collect all the figures when I was a kid, and now I’ll just bloody draw them myself instead!

This isn’t the first time Templesmith has traveled to a galaxy far, far away. He also illustrated a rather creepy story “Dark Journey” in issue #17 of Star Wars Tales, published by Dark Horse Comics.

We can’t wait to see which Star Wars characters he draws next for The Ben TempleSith Project!

Be sure to follow Ben Templesmith’s blog, as well as on his Twitter.


Hello R2 Kitty?

Bonnie Burton | September 29, 2010

Even though this R2-D2 as Hello Kitty is just an illustration by the talented artist Joseph Senior, we can’t help wonder if this would be the image we see when looking up the word “adorkable” in the dictionary.

Senior has also given Hello Kitty makeovers to other Star Wars characters like Darth Vader, Boba Fett, C-3PO and more!

Jiang says about his print:

“Imagining what those people on Tatooine see in every day life is something I wanted to create for this Star Wars poster. One of the sandtroopers is patrolling on the night shift and decides to stay up on a high rock with his dewback. Maybe he is waiting to see the sunrise or just wants to be alone for a little while. It s a little peace before things eventually go wrong.”

Let’s Hear It For This Cool Star Wars Ear Tattoo

StarWars.com Team | September 7, 2010

Tattoo artist and Star Wars fan Jacob Walsh has the kind of tattoo that makes listening to John Williams’ soundtrack even more special. StarWars.com chats with him about his unusual tattoo.

Why did you decide to get a Star Wars tattoo… on your ear?

I am a tattoo artist and was sitting at work on May 4th thinking, “I have to get a Star Wars tattoo today.” It was originally gonna be some sort of design on the inside of my lip but I couldn’t decide on something that would work. After the idea of getting the Death Star popped up I decided to go with the ear just because it fit better.

How did you decide on the design?

It needed to be something that didn’t need a lot of detail to be recognizable. The original idea was a lightsaber inside my lip. When I thought that wouldn’t work I just started doodling and came up with a Death Star. It’s a very simple image and everyone knows what the Death Star is. When I decided on the Death Star my artist suggested that it would fit better on the ear. We just went with it and thought it would look cool with a TIE fighter thrown in.
